PHOTOS: Flat Paris Facades Completed, More Pavement Work, Lighting Being Installed for Ratatouille Area in France Pavilion at EPCOT

Work in EPCOT’s France pavilion rages on, with several notable changes happening overnight.

Work on the outside landscaping facing the Friendship Boats dock continues to move along, with more foliage being planted.

Over near the walkway that before the restrooms, we also saw workers installing wiring for lighting details as well as railing pieces along the upper portion of the wall.

The decorative fountain is coming along nicely, with the base covered now my protective plastic and water lines rising from the center.

Glass windows have also been added to the ride queue covers.

Overnight, scaffolding was removed from the flat background facades, pointing towards this part of the project being almost over. Sadly, this is the finished product. While it may look fine from in front of the attraction, those posts in the back and the fact that these are flat are quite visible from the front of the France pavilion. Does anyone in this company still care about sightlines?

Painting on more building facades continues down below. At least these look good from all angles.

Repaving of the cobblestones over in front of Monsieur Paul continues, with this section blocked off to guests.

Further repaving and resurfacing has meant that this section in front of Plume et Palette is blocked off as well.

More scoring marks can be seen along the shop’s windows, meaning these are next to be resurfaced.

Why, why, WHY are they removing all the cobblestone? What happened to this company with the cheapening of just about everything. Very sad.
